National Scrapbooking Day!

I check the mail daily, and no Design Team assignment! Sheesh! Thank heavens a NATIONAL holiday comes this weekend so I can distract myself from my anxious waiting. National Scrapbook Day will find me and my Snippet friends Cathy and Cindy at Craft Warehouse for their celebration. (40% Off Coupons!!! Drawings! Make and Takes!) I am also creating another pop up card for my sister-in-law La Quita. These pop ups are tricky--at least the first couple of times! No photos yet! Just ideas so far!

Sunday..The Judges' Comments

Well, the judges' comments brought tears to my eyes. I am overwhelmed with their generosity! I seem to be the only person on the Design Team who is a first time design team-er. I am really thrilled. Here are their comments about my submission.
Laurie Martin-Cohn
Ummm……………………….WOW!Impeccable. Inventive. Inspiring. Interesting. Ingenious. Intelligent. Incredible.This girl has FLAIR, and WOW she is such a CREATIVE designer. I’m in awe, seriously, I’m looking at Laurie’s work for like the 10th time here, and I’m still in awe. The layouts are so full of texture, the project is so amazing, and the cards are incredibly inventive. Love the paper and element pairings. Love that she lets the ‘white space’ breathe.So excited to see what she will come up with next!

I Await My First Design Team Assignment with Excitement

I was given this logo to display on my blog. Isn't it cool?? I could receive my first Craft Warehouse Design Team assignment the middle of next week! Thank heavens my play will be over and I will have some free time to scrap!!! I am looking forward to going to my Craft Warehouse on Saturday in the AM for National Scrapbooking Day. It is fun, although last year we waited in line for hours due to a register overload.

These are the remaining photos of designs I submitted to Craft Warehouse.

Here it is! My very first post!

I was inspired to create this blog by my fellow scrapbookers on the 2009 Craft Warehouse Design Team. This is my first Design Team, and I am awaiting my first assignment on May 1, 2009. These are a few of the designs I submitted for the DT:
